Ive always been a fan of Brentz, Hill. He will probably have his share of K's, but also hios share of HR's too. Solid defense with a good arm.
Alamanzar has a rep of being a bit lazy, but has finally started to show something this year in the minors. He was drafted at a very young age and is still just a month away from turning 22, so maybe hes grown up a little and we can start seeing some consistency from him in the future.
